No award or critique changes your work and its message.
I loved the introduction for the award for Best Director at the Oscars on Sunday night. The presenter said no matter who's name is inside the envelope as the winner, no one will be able to change the film you created. It will be the same when you walk out of the building as it was when you walked in.
Your work and its message does not change when it receives an award, just as it doesn't change when it is criticized.
